PLEASE BE ADVISED: The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in statewide physical school closures in February/March 2020 followed by the widespread implementation of distance learning during the 2020–21 academic year. The California Department of Education (CDE) recommends caution when comparing discipline data across academic years. For more information about the impact of COVID-19 on data reporting, please visit the CDE COVID-19 and Data Reporting web page.
